Matt Damon slammed over remarks

Matt Damon slammed over remarks

Actors Alyssa Milano and Minnie Driver have criticised Matt Damon for the "tone deaf" comments he made this week about the "culture of outrage" over sexual misconduct. "These women are all telling the truth, '" Damon said. "And it is righteous", she continued in the Twitter thread.

Matt Damon, in a recent interview with ABC News, discussed the mounting charges of sexual misconduct from powerful men in Hollywood and the #MeToo movement.

"I do believe that there's a spectrum of behaviour, right?"

"There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation", the 47-year-old said. "They all hurt. And they are all connected to a patriarchy intertwined with normalised, accepted - even welcomed - misogyny." she tweeted. "Both of those behaviours need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated".

Senior Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil is trailing against BJP's Virendrasinh Jadeja from Mandvi seat. At this stage, the BJP had a vote share of 49.2 per cent while it was 41.7 per cent for the Congress.

Driver, who was an item with Damon after they starred together in "Good Will Hunting" in the late '90s - also had something to say about her ex's remarks. They simply cannot understand what abuse is like on a daily level.I honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can't tell a woman about their abuse.

Speaking to The Guardian, Driver explained that she's growing frustrated with the growing contingent of men attempting to codify and explain abuse to women, including "good men" like Damon. Their relationship ended awkwardly in 1998, when Damon denied he had a girlfriend while appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show. So when you hear, 'Harvey this, Harvey that, ' I mean, look at the guy. When he came out and said, 'I did this. "I tried to kick him, and then he punched me". "Like, when I am raising my kids, this constant personal responsibility is as important as anything else they learn before they go off in the world". I've never met him.

"I don't imagine he's going to do those things again", he said of C.K. "It seems to me that he thinks that because he didn't rape somebody - so far as we know - that what he did do wasn't as bad", Driver told the outlet. "That's the sign of somebody who - well, we can work with that.I don't know Louis CK. I imagine the price that he's paid at this point is so beyond anything that he - I just think that we have to kind of start delineating between what these behaviours are".

Reaction has been swift on social media for another celebrity's statement as well.
